More detailed information on the grades, names, and FAs of these climbs can be found in the Adirondack Park Bouldering guidebook, available at

The Cove Boulders are a small series of boulders from house-sized to lowballs found inside the Rogers Rock State Park. Not going to be a destination bouldering spot, but if you're vacationing in the area and itching to pull down, this is worth stopping at.

Great relief from the sun in the Summer - well shaded. Bug spray is recommended.

Rock is bulletproof for the most part. Potential for tons of new problems

Getting There 

(West Side of the Lake) Drive North or South on 9N until you reach the Rogers Rock State Park turn off (Lakeside of the road). $10 Day use fee at the ranger booth, then proceed towards the boat launch. Park in the lot designated for trailer and day use parking. Walk 1/4 mile on the road that continues through the parking lot and campground going north along the lake, you should pass through a "do not enter" orange gate and eventually a bathroom on the right. The boulders are big and obviously seen on the left of the dirt road.

Great to see these boulders getting some attention. Most of the problems described appear in Adirondack Bouldering by Justin Sanford, Satan Slab may be an exception....proud line!

Thanks Haas! Feel free to suggest the true names and FAs of these problems. No chalk was found on any rocks and no information was found on investigation so liberties were taken. If Satan Slab isn't in the guidebook it should be, maybe the best problem in the area.

yeah the FA info, grades, and names on these routes are all wrong.

there's a new Adirondack bouldering guidebook out that details this particular area - def worth picking up.

There was certainly no credit trying to be taken for these boulders. If you know the names and grades that these go at as well as FAs, I'd love to correct the information.
